Taking advantage of the entertainment organized during the half-time of the Premier League match, the young Crystal Palace fan used the freedom to make fun of the rival fans with whom his club is in competition.
Crystal Palace were taking a breather when they returned to the dressing room yesterday afternoon, 1-0 up against Brighton in a run of six league wins without a win. At half-time the Eagles club entertained their fans, inviting some of them to the Selhurst Park pitch to challenge the mascot placed in the goals.

This is the moment a young Palace fan chose to enter the Brighton area after taking a shot on goal. The young boy, whose performance was broadcast on the stadium’s giant screens, pointed his finger at his mouth before giving fingers of honor to rival fans who traveled the 70 kilometers between Brighton and South London.
The reason for the rivalry between these two formations may be purely geographical, as the two places are several tens of kilometers apart. This duel, planned in the middle of the holiday, ended in a draw with the goal scored by Danny Welbeck at the end of the match.
